Google Launches New Pixel Phones with 30-Hour Battery Life
On Tuesday, Google announced that they were releasing more budget-friendly variants of the flagship Pixel 3 family.
The new Pixels – 3A and 3XL – features Google’s HDR plus technology which enhances the portrait Mode, Super Res Zoom, and Night Sight. The new ‘Night Sight’ feature will allow users to take pictures in super low light while saving them in the Google photos app which has unlimited storage.
Google also made its new phones with an 18-watt charger providing you with up to seven hours of battery life on a 15-minute charge and up to 30 hours on a full charge. The tech company uses plastic rather than glass for the rear along with a more basic Snapdragon 670 processor, a limit of 64GB of maximum storage and certified water resistance. Also, the headphone jack made a major comeback with the Pixel 3A.
Furthermore, Google proposes an ultimate ‘Pixel experience’- great hardware, software and design, for people who might find iPhones too basic and Samsung phones, unsafe.
In a briefing ahead of the announcement, Google’s VP of product management for Pixel, Brian Rakowski, said the phones are intended for people who would like to buy a Pixel, but are left behind by that phone’s $800 (and up) price tag.
Google promises three years of Android OS and security updates with the Pixel 3A, making it immediately among the best long-term support propositions you can get from an Android device. That’s usually the case with Google phones anyway, but now there’s a firm, and comparatively generous, support period attached.
The new releases will still keep the most lived features like the Google assistant which will allow users to text, get directions, set reminders and much more through a simple voice command.
